YOU WILL FAIL!!

image by Thikstock

Yes, I just addressed the elephant in the room. You will fail and it’s ok to do so. And you can find a hell lot of articles on the medium that can tell you the benefits of failing, but I am here to make you absorb that feeling of pain and anger and disgust that you will feel when you fail.

The more you struggle, the more likely it is that you fail and it is necessary for a sense that it’s like breath for living.

But if it’s so noble and praiseworthy to fail why it is so that you are never rewarded for failure?

It is because the prize you get for failure is confined to your self, a thing that resides in your heart and nowhere else.

In this world where everyone seems to be living the perfect life, where everyone is a star on Instagram and Facebook, why anyone would boast their failure like medals?

It’s because you want to escape the inevitable truth. Just like death. Even when you know you cannot escape it still we live like there’s no way we are going to die, but it’s the only truth of life.

No matter if you are Bill Gates or a beggar you will die one day. And it’s the same with failure.

In the Mahabharata when Arjun was hesitant to kill his family members to restore justice and balance in the society, Lord Krishna asked him…

“Do you believe that you have the power of creation and destruction in your hand? You are just a mere human that has been used as an instrument by me to teach the world a lesson. Don’t blame yourself for the things you cannot control. Pick up your bow and fight Arjun”.

You have to let go of the illusion of control and thinking that you are the one responsible for all the things. Rather you must believe in yourself and do what is necessary.

Do your jobs will full believe and compassion and let the fear of failure rest because you cannot do anything about it.

Fail gallantly and terribly. Fail so hard that it’s impossible to live. And in that very moment, you will meet your true self, clear and pure. Then you must look into the mirror and tell yourself that you’ll rise like a phoenix.


YOU WILL FAIL!! was originally published in ILLUMINATION on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
